Cuba. Caribbean warmth and charm - 22 dage

Cuba + your own motorbike = a VERY special motorcycle adventure. It is the 10'th year Moto Mundo travels to Cuba.

You will meet with your own motorbike in Havanna. We arrange the transport. Now you can travel from Havanna in the east through cowboy-land, orange fields, sugar-cane fields as long as the eye can reach. Along the north and south coast. Experience Castros unique blend of socialism and salsa - before its to late! Havanna, one of the most seducing cities in the world is waiting for you - the tropical beaches, green mountains, historical cities and the very accommodating local population. The trip unites the funniest motorcycle-roads with nice hotels, the beautiful beaches and Cubas culture and society - guided by Soren Vestergaard which has travelled Cuba several times on motorbike and knows the country very well. In February the wind is warm and mild on Cuba. Enjoy Cuba on your own motorbike. Enjoy life!
